The Eur/Usd April 2015

What is the trend in Eur/Usd? For some is uptrend, for others it's downtrend, and for others is sideways. You see? Very ambiguous criteria. Anyway I trade it long. I never follow the trend and never trade against that. I…

1st quarter review. How do the FX markets differ compared to early January?

At the start of the year, USD, NZD, & GBP were my top three ranked currencies, with CHF, CAD & EUR neutral and NOK, SEK, JPY & AUD classified bearish.  Each week since then I have reviewed these rankings and there have been a number of currencies which have moved up or down the order during this time.  Some weeks there have been no changes at all, which is to be expected given that these are medium-term rankings.

Just because the outlook is for around 3-6…

How has recent FX volatility affected underlying Currency trends?

Over recent weeks there has been a notable pick-up in volatility for a number of major Currencies, including reversals for the US Dollar &  Euro following their prolonged advance & decline.  The question is, has corrective weakness for the US Dollar & corrective strength for the Euro yet run its course, or will there will further retraces of the previous multi-month US Dollar advance & Euro fall? And what now for the multi-month outlook?

Each week I assess…

Societé Generale - Core FX views

Societé Generale - "Core FX views:

1) Buy ‘cheaper’ EM and high-beta currencies. ZAR and TRY stand out, perhaps INR too on valuations. See our EM colleagues’ thoughts for more details.

2) Wait to sell overvalued G10 currencies. That really means waiting to sell AUD, NZD and CAD at better levels. I'd better warn that AUD/USD above 0.95 might be irresistible however!

3) EUR/USD and even more so GBP/USD can still squeeze higher.

4) USD/JPY is in a range, and if it breaks, it…

Barclays' Top FX Trades For 2014: long EUR/CHF & USD/CHF

Trade (thematic trades): long EUR/CHF, and USD/CHF


• We remain CHF bears despite its recent resilience.

 The reasons for CHF strength most often discussed by market participants fall into three groups:

• Persistent current account surpluses leading to appreciation pressure on the CHF.

• Expectations for a softening in the CHF floor, driven by a better economic outlook.

EURGBP - Upside failure turns focus back south

Although the sequence of 2 down weeks ended last week, it is the weakness of the rally that is assessed as more important. Profit taking demand over the 1st two days of last week took EURGBP to the top of the weekly Ichimoku Cloud, back inside the daily Cloud and above the key 13 day m.a.

But this proved temporary with selling renewed in the last 3 days and only minor net gains posted by the close. This price action leaves sentiment mildly negative and we're looking for a…

EURGBP - Bullish outside week to lead higher this week

3 weeks of fluctuating price action in EURGBP were followed by a rejection of initial lows and strong buying in the last 5 days. The resulting gains, using a Marabuzo line from January as a platform, created a Bullish Outside Week.

This positive pattern often signals a change in market sentiment and with the daily Keltner channel trending positively now and the 13 day mvg avg exceeded for the first time in a month, we look for demand to continue.

.8532 and towards .8591 are valid…

USDCHF - Keltner channel trending - 2012 lows in focus.

The market failed to extend Tuesday’s rejection of 20-month lows. Instead selling pressure was renewed but although a 3rd negative performance from the last 4 days resulted, net losses were modest and the week’s lows went untested. This means signals are not strong going into today but with the Keltner channel trending bearishly, limited rallies and renewed selling in Asia the focus remains on the downside with a move through .8993 confirming a exposing .8972 then towards the 2012…

USDCHF Selling Resumed. Keltner channel Bearish. 2013 low targeted

Although net downside yesterday was not extensive, the move to new 7 month lows was enough to signal an end to 4 days of trendless trading. USDCHF continues to hug the Keltner channel base with rallies capped well below the 13 day m.a and so although oversold extremes are a concern we're looking to downside levels .9079, .9042 or even .9022 - the latter in the coming days.…

EURGBP - Key Average broken. Rally to build

Wednesday’s rejection of 8 month lows extended yesterday. The strongest performance of this month resulted with a rally that took the cross marginally through the key 13 day moving average that has capped prices throughout September. Despite overbought extremes, intraday signals are also supportive and so we look for this demand to extend.

.8454/65 is the immediate target area. .8481 behind that.…

Trading Price Action and Fractals

Hello Traders

In a previous live trading video, I received some feedback about why I put the buy and sell trading boxes where I did. To explain, I thought it a good idea to create an video on it to show the logic. It’s all to do with a combination of price action and fractals. Understanding the concepts of these are important to any trader, so if you are weak in this area take a look at this video where I…

The Last 12 Months – Profits and Emotions

I recently received a mail requesting I explain the improvements I made with my trading in the past 12 months. If you didn’t see it, I recently created a video to launch the NGFX Blog and stated in the video that I had learnt more in the past 12 months trading than I had in the past 5 years.

So what did I learn you might be thinking? Basically I approached trading from a completely…

Ideas About Trade Management

If you have struggles with trade management, take a look at this video where I cover off some high level ideas that you should consider and then provide a brief overview of how I currently manage trades.

I cover three things that are important, firstly the type of trade you are taking (e.g. scalp, spot, swing), whether you like to take profit proactively, or trail your stop, and how your personal emotions impact your trading.

If you can work and settle on these, you should go a…
